Abstract
A game apparatus for display of a game image in which a moving body moves in a virtual space is provided. The game apparatus comprises: a polygon data memory for storing polygon data which define shapes of polygons constituting the moving body; a texture image memory for storing a texture image which indicates a reflected state of ambient light; a position specifying unit for specifying a position of the moving body in the virtual space; and a first image drawing unit for drawing a polygon based on the position of the moving body and the polygon data; a determination unit for determining a part of the texture image stored in the texture image memory based on the specified position of the moving body; and a second image drawing unit for drawing a translucent polygon over the polygon of the moving body, the translucent polygon having pasted thereon the part of the texture determined by the determination unit.
